    What a joke ... that dude would sell his soul to the devil to make a few sales. I never understood why making a mockery of yourself is good for that kind of business. I don't think it's racism as much as it's just poor humor and badly done at that. Sadly, if they get serious with their ads then people expect better quality. If they act like idiots and sell cheaply then people will figure they get what they pay for.

    He's in CA and he didn't make fun of spanish or blacks. I'd say he's playing to his audience. Gary se habla espanol?

    It is racist. It is the worst kind of racist: intentionally stereotypical racist- and it got what it was gong for: a reaction from people.

    The guy is no fool, he will get vilified left and right but he will be laughing all the way to the bank with the free advertising this is doing for his business.

    I don't know if you could call it racist because hes trashing everyone equally bad. IMO to be racist he would have to single one out.

    NO.....I do no "equally bad" doesn't sound right though. I must have meant to say equally.

    Here come the PC police. Personally, I thought it was hilarious. It's meant to be funny. If a comedian says what he says, it comedy. Well, his commerical is intended to be just that. I don't think I'd ever do something like that, but I thought it was funny. He made fun of Italians too. Who cares. It was funny.

    The greatest commercials ever are the E-trade commercials...

    This commercial reminds me of the local low budget commercials, cannot tolerate someone yelling at me over the airwaves .. usually will say what can that person be thinking, is his family paying attention??? Thank god for a mute button, would not buy a mattress from this guy.

    What are you? A bunch of children? Geesh, now I feel like Patriotsreign, but anyway the Miller Lite guys own at the very least the top three commercials of all time. Check out this gem. There's even one where a very young Seve Ballesteros wishes everyone felize navidad during a Christmas commercial and nobody flipped out. Those were the good ol' days.

    Anyway I don't think you can be racist if you pick on everyone, and that guy probably has other commercials where he covers those he missed in this one, you can, however, be a dik.
